Wooing Cadie McCaffrey

My Rating: 3.75 Stars
I have mixed feelings about this book. There were parts I loved and parts I didn't care for.  I loved all the mentions of some of my most favorite romcoms, or as I like to call them, ChickFlicks. Bethany hit most of my favorites along the way in "Wooing Cadie McCaffrey." and it was fun to see them mentioned. I enjoyed the characters in this book, especially Kevin and Ellis! I loved the way they joined forces with Will to help him win Cadie back. That was hilarious and sweet and definitely my favorite part of the novel. I didn't love Cadie's parents, they drove me NUTS! Some of the misunderstandings and such drove me crazy, and Cadie annoyed me at times. Overall, the book was cute and a perfect light summer read. There were some aspects that surprised me in the book, but they were handled well. I would give this between a 3.5 and a 4 star review and I will round up to 4 for goodreads etc.

The Number Of Love

My Rating: 4 Stars
This was such a fun read! I thoroughly enjoyed the plot of the Codebreakers especially Margot and the way her brain worked so differently from mine(I am not mathematical in the slightest!). Books set during either of the World Wars are intriguing to me and I love that it's set during World War 1. The look into the code breaking that went on during the war was fascinating to me. The characters were likable and different, with Margot's super intelligence and Dot's difficulties so that was a cool element with unusual types of characters that you don't usually see in fiction. The story wove together well and kept me wondering at how it would all turn out in the end. It was a little slow for me at times but overall I enjoyed the story. All in all, a great start to Roseanna's new series.

THE NUMBER OF LOVE (The Codebreakers #1)
by Roseanna M. White
The Toughest Puzzle She'll Have to Solve Might Be the Wishes of Her Own Heart

Three years into the Great War, England's greatest asset is their intelligence network--field agents risking their lives to gather information, and codebreakers able to crack German telegrams for hints of the enemy's plans. Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, she discovers for the first time in her life that numbers aren't enough.

Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy who just won't give up. He's smitten quickly by the quick and brainy Margot, but soon the dangers of the war draw ever closer. Margot and Drake will have to team up to save themselves from the very secrets that brought them together.

The Printed Letter Bookshop

My Rating: 4 stars
This book ended up being a charming read! The storyline intrigued me from the first time I heard about it and I immediately wanted to read it. Once I started it, I was drawn in to the lives of the three women. As the book progressed, it did get a little heavy with all the ladies were going through but the story wove together beautifully. By the end I had connected with a couple characters in particular and I ended up loving the book. A great read! It’s not a sunshine and flowers book but it’s real and good.

More Than Words Can Say

My Rating: 5 Stars(and then some!)
Karen has done it again! Karen's books are always at the top of my must read and favorite lists and this one is no exception. I have been eagerly awaiting Zach's story for a year and it did not disappoint in the least. It was going to take a special woman to claim Zach's heart and Karen created a perfect counterpart in Abigail. She is going to be one of my most favorite of Karen's characters, and while Amos is still my favorite of Karen's heroes, Zach is a VERY close second! More Than Words Can Say is full of great characters from Zach and Abigail to a very well crafted villain(who in all honesty, I would love to see her redemption story!) and some adorable kiddos. This book was one I devoured! If you enjoy great historical Christian Fiction with lots of heart and humor and a great faith message, then this is the book for you!

The Dive Sweetens The Pie

My Rating: 3 Stars
This was not my favorite Diva book. It started off kind of slow for me at the beginning. Then it picked up and added a couple elements I really liked. The mystery was pretty good from that point on. However in the resolution of the mystery there were a couple of elements I had a real issue with-much like Sophie did in the book. That drops my rating and overall enjoyment of this installment. So elements I liked versus elements I hated, average out to 3 star rating for me.  Still I have enjoyed this series so I will continue on with it.

Summer By The Tides

My Rating: 4 Stars
Denise has penned a nearly perfect summer beach read in Summer By The Tides. A great blend of of romance and humor with a dash of mystery kept me intrigued by the book throughout. This story would make a GREAT Hallmark movie! A great summer read!

Now And Then And Always

My Rating: 5+ Stars

Love, Love, loved this book!! Melissa has crafted a beautiful story that brings us back to the town of Maple Valley, Iowa which I have happily visited in several prior books. Of all the fictional towns that I have been able to visit through story, this is truly one of my favorite places to visit, and one I dearly wish was real!! In this latest story, we meet Marshall and Mara, two characters who captured my heart from the very beginning of the story. The story with humor, mystery and romance enthralled me from start to finish. Seeing two people who have been so hurt and broken in their pasts, find healing and love and a place to belong, made this story an instant favorite for me. Don't miss this book!
